LONDON (ICIS)--Italy-based producer Polynt has lifted the force majeure on its phthalic anhydride (PA) supplies in Europe, a company source said on Thursday.

The force majeure on its PA supplies was removed on 8 October, but confirmation was not received until now. The lifting of the supply restrictions follows its recent return to normal PA operations.

Polynt had declared force majeure on its PA supplies in Europe in mid-June on the back of shortages of feedstock orthoxylene (OX).

Polynt has the capacity to produce 80,000 tonnes/year of PA from its plant in Bergamo, Italy, and 30,000 tonnes/year of PA from its plant in San Giovanni Valdarno, according to the ICIS.
